Adventure Challenge – Day 8: Bought a new car!

Adventure can be anything out of the ordinary. Today, I had a crazy day. It started with me teaching a class this morning in Illinois. I followed that with a 5 hour drive to Kansas City. I had a deadline to meet, so I didn’t have a chance to pull over for a road side adventure today.

However, I did have time to go sign paperwork on my “new to me” car. I have been working on this over the phone for a week. Me getting a new car is an adventure because it involves money and a commitment; both things I am afraid of. I have spent months trying to figure out what vehicle will meet my needs. I need something that I can haul paintings in, be able to take on camping and road trip, haul around a kiddo (safety), and still get great gas mileage. After tons of research and deliberation, I decided on a VW Sports Wagon TDi. With 50 mpg and plenty of cargo space, it just seems like the best fit for me right now.

I don’t commit to debt easily. It’s something I have avoided the majority of my life. It’s a big scary thing to me, so for today, it was enough adventure. What adventure did you go on today?
